American Made Sterling Silver Serving Spoon With Pseudo British HallmarksAmerican Made Sterling Silver Serving Spoon With Pseudo British HallmarksAmerican Made Sterling Silver Serving Spoon With Pseudo British Hallmarks

When I first put this spoon on Ruby Lane I stated that it was made in London in 1778 by silversmith "RW". The problem that I had was that I couldn't find any reference to the maker's mark. After further research, I have found that the marks are not English but were made by an American silversmith by the name of Robert Wilson and the marks are pseudo (fake) hallmarks. Robert Wilson started as a silversmith in New York City in 1803 until 1810 when he moved to Philadelphia. He continued to work on his own until 1825 when he went into business with his son William and changed his hallmark to "R&W.Wilson". The company remained open until 1846.
